Engine and handcrews will be patrolling Hwy 140, watching for rolling material and hotspots. Crews on the north side of the fire will complete removal of the hoses and equipment that were used for mop-up. The weather today will be hot and dry so smoke from the interior of the fire may be visible.
A Type 3 incident management team will take over management of the fire at 6:00 PM this evening. This team will work alongside the Type 1 team today in order to assure a smooth transition of command. This team will continue to manage the fire until full containment is achieved and firelines are returned to as natural condition as possible.
This will be the last update from California Interagency Incident Management Team 3. The park will continue to send out updates as conditions warrant.
